SDCC 2010: Panelfly To Partner With Sony, AOL, Hulu On Digital Comics Reader [Updated]

[Update – we have new information and some clarification on the original news out of the panel at SDCC. Click here for the updated report, which includes a quote we got from founder and CEO of SYN Kirt Mcmaster.]

Panelfly has formed a partnership with Sony, AOL, and Hulu to produce a new digital comics reader software called Syn, according to CEO Wade Slitkin, who made the announcement during the “Digital Comics Now” panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.

A Syn iPad app was said to be released soon, featuring the Panelfly skeletal software. This will replace the Panelfly name and become the main product for the company.

This is the first “cross-platform” partnership made with a digital comics company and details have yet to be released. However, the temporary holding page, synner.net, states a 2011 release and offer e-mail notifications when new details become available.

  1. Thanks for the report… As an aspiring creator I’ve had my eye on Panelfly (especially the myFly self publishing aspect of their platform) and was curious what news they had for today.
